Foreword – March 4, 2024

We’d like to highlight a resource this week that provides access to consumer health information that is free for all to use. MedlinePlus ( is a service of the National Library of Medicine, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The information provided on the website is curated by health science librarians (and not by an algorithm). It’s a great place to start for information on medical conditions, medications, medical tests, and more. For each condition, information is provided on things like symptoms, diagnosis and tests, treatments and therapies, and research. It is a great way for medical consumers to get familiar with an unfamiliar condition or go more in-depth on a topic of interest.

Have you wondered what’s the deal with apps? Smartphone Apps, a class provided by Bug Tussel University, will teach you what smartphone apps are, how they work, and how to find, download, remove, and manage them on your phone. The program is Saturday, March 23, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please stop in or call the library to register.

Storytime continues on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m. Young children and their caregivers are invited to come for stories, songs, silliness, and more!

The library is hiring! We’re looking for a library clerk and youth programming specialist. Please see our website or stop in the library for more information.
